    Project Manager Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GSD&M.

    Interview

    Applied online, took about 6+ weeks to hear back. Went in person for the first interview, and it was the classic intimidating interview style. No warmth, no personality, more of an interrogation than a conversation. Extremely uncomfortable and I felt ganged up on. I knew it was a stretch going in, but was made to feel so bad about myself for even thinking I could work at GSD&M. They definitely think highly of themselves over there. Never heard back from them, even after sending a thank you email.

    Social Media Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at GSD&M (Austin, TX) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Very difficult to get an in-person interview here. When I finally got in the door, it took a few weeks to get scheduled, then at least a week or two between interviews, so don't expect anything overnight from these guys. Typical "conversational" interviews. There are three - four rounds (meeting with the next higher level person each time). During my final interview...the fourth interview - I was told that I was competing with people half my age, etc. Not fitting the position is one thing, discrimination is another; Any kind of discrimination sucks. I am still very shocked to have had this experience with GSD&M.

    Interview

    Over the phone. Normal interview questions. Make sure to know about Advertising. It was a good experience, but I wish it was in person. Normally, the interview process is done in person.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GSD&M (Austin, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Very laid back interview process. Applied online, followed up with a phone interview, and eventually brought in for an in-person. Very enjoyable. The interviewers always made you feel comfortable and as if you were simply having a conversation. They showed me around the office and described some of the jobs I would be doing upon being hired.

    Summer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GSD&M (Austin, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Very casual and conversational. They are looking more to the way you think and projects you have engaged with. A big part of the interview I believe is if you are a good fit to the culture. Overall people are really friendly and laid-back - even though there are very intense projects and long work hours. Play hard - party hard.

    It was very laid back and everyone was very nice. Met with multiple people across the agency and lasted about five hours. They also took me to lunch, which was very nice. They paid for me to fly in and for my hotel. It was a great interview experience.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at GSD&M (Austin, TX) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I was put in touch with GSD&M by a staffing agency. It was really more of a part-time (with potential to go full time) type position. The staffing agency gave me a lot of information on the company, and said that I would be working in the invoicing department. They were overloaded and needed some help. The interviewer was very friendly and asked standard questions.
